I would like to get forecasts and analytics regarding polyethylene.

Good day,

Thank you for your inquiry. Our database is plentiful with reports on chemical and material industry and on polyethylene including statistics and forecast through 2100.

Report 1: The study of the effect of basic materials, Jan 2015

This is a research report from the Centre for Energy Efficiency that contains a section on the projected basic materials production until 2100 with a subsection dedicated to plastics and polyethylene.  There is only a midterm projection until 2024 for polyethylene specifically. There are also forecasts for the entire plastics industry.

Report 2: Creating Customer Value, Global Milk, Jan 2015

This report by Tetra Laval contains a section discussing the use of high-density polyethylene compared to that of PET.  According to this report, PET is expected to grow past the forecast for high-density polyethylene (pg 51) particularly for the use in dairy packaging.

Report 3: Special Report:  Petrochemicals, Sep 2014

This report on petrochemicals discusses demand and forecasts for all of the major petrochemicals with forecasts for polyethylene for the next ten years.

“Globally, the regional growth centres for polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP) are Asia, Central and South America, Central and Eastern Europe, South America and the Middle East. Asia and Africa, is forecast to show the strongest polyethylene demand growth over the next ten years…” (pg 2).
